“The Darkness In Your Dreams” is an awesome listen. It is hard to put a metal genre label on this band: The music here does not have any true genre except the one that is important. That of course, is heavy metal. There are clear influences here of thrash, metal core, and melodic death metal. All these different genres collide in what turns out to be an epic listen. The guitar solos are beautifully done. The drumming is heavy and consistent, the bass does a great job bringing it all together while the vocals keep you entranced.
Skar Ritual set out to create American heavy metal, and they have achieved their goal. In doing so, they also created something that is uniquely theirs. With the flood of new metal music coming from every corner of the globe, it is a wonderful surprise to hear something so different, so original, so metal.
